In the lead-up to the 2013 federal election, the GBCA is engaging with all political parties and calling on them to commit to better buildings, communities and cities.
We are focusing on three priorities that will place Australia on a clear, long-term pathway to a healthier, more productive, more resilient and more sustainable built environment.
We've developed a three-point plan that outlines these three priorities and what we are seeking from the federal government:
1. Provide visionary government leadership
2. Retrofit and improve existing buildings
3. Move beyond buildings to communities and cities.
While we are calling on all political parties to outline their policies to deliver better buildings, communities and cities, we recognise that there must be a coordinated approach from all levels of government, industry and the community if we are to achieve the best outcomes.
A three-point plan for better buildings and communities: Our call to government not only outlines what we are asking of federal government, but details the commitment and action we are seeking from
- state government
- local government
- the community
- builders, developers and owners
- industry associations.
Just as importantly, the plan also includes the ways in which the GBCA is committed to supporting government, and all other stakeholders, as we work together to transform the built environment.
Australia’s future economic productivity, liveability and sustainability depend on getting it right with our buildings, our communities and our cities. A long-term commitment to policies and programs that drive sustainability in the built environment is essential.
